He’s Huggable, He’s Cuddable – He’s Everybody’s Favorite!
September 9th, celebrates National Teddy Bear Day. Children find a lot of comfort in a Teddy Bear. He has so many wonderful qualities! He’s cuddly, he makes you feel secure, he’s a good companion, he’s not afraid of the dark – he’ll keep you safe!
Teddy Bears are often our first friends and best buddies; sometimes a life long companion. We all have memories of a special cuddly teddy as a child. Some of us still have that good friend.
EMS squads and police forces around the country routinely give teddy bears to sick, injured and traumatized children when attending them to help them remain calm during stressful situations. Squeezing a teddy bear tight really helps.
Fiesta Toys is honored and privileged to create such a memorable part of our early years. All this softness, security and safety wrapped in something so cute. Enjoy and treasure. Remember someone special by giving him or her a Teddy Bear. Happy Teddy Bear Day!

The Origin of the Teddy Bear:
During the early 1900s, President Theodore Roosevelt was in office as President of the United States. He was a hunter. While hunting in Mississippi in 1902, he refused to shoot a small bear. The Washington Post picked up on this story, and made a cartoon of the event. Toy store owners, Morris and Rose Michtom, wrote to President Roosevelt for permission to call their stuffed animals “Teddy Bears”. Teddy bears became wildly popular. Their company went on to become the Ideal Toy Company, one of the largest toy companies in the world.
